    It's not VAR that is at fault it's the numpties that are applying the decisions, it's as if there is now a rule that if anyone is touched in the face (and roles around like a soft tart) it's a foul. How anyone can look at the slight contact on Son's face and think that it was a foul is beyond me. Son should have been Red Carded for Simulation! End of!!!

    Scott committed a similar foul against Newcastle at home on Matthew Longstaff last season when we won 4-1 on Boxing Day. The “foul” led to a goal, and when the ref checked it he gave us the goal. What’s the point with VAR if you’re going to make a different decision on the EXACT same “foul” every single game smh

    This whole VAR bs is nonsense. What exactly is the limit for calling a foul on buildup play? I mean, should we start going back 1 min? 2? 5 passes? 10? Did he hit the guy on the face? Yes. What if he hit his shoulder? Is it a goal then? I mean this crap is getting so tired. The PL needs to revisit this whole VAR concept and put some limitations on it before it gets completely insane.

  • TheSoulTwins

    I hate to be one of those 'It wasn't like this in my day' types - but I have to say that the constant diving, falling down and rolling around like you have been shot etc is one of the most disgusting and disgraceful aspects of the modern game. If you ever watch matches from the 50's to the 80's [and even the 90's] you never ever see these kinds of dreadful behaviours. Essentially what Son did yesterday is CHEATING - so why don't referees and the Football governing bodies do something about it? I have total respect for Ole [and Roy Keane] for calling these CHEATING bastards out! They are ruining the game and perhaps football needs to take a good hard look at itself when fellow 'professional' [now there's an oxymoron!] footballers and managers not only condone but actually encourage these shameful practices. In fact, football needs to look at other sports [especially Rugby Union] to see how the actions of errant players is dealt with. And ironically how much respect Rugby players have for the officials and their decision-making during the game. The behaviour of players like Neymar and now Son thoroughly sicken me - they are obscenely over-paid for what they do but they are role-models to millions of kids. Isn't it about time they were forced to act responsibly and with some semblance of decency?

    It would be naive to think that it doesn’t happen. However, the problem I had with yesterday (whether the decision was right or wrong) was that clearly Son was only touched by a fingertip yet he stayed down for at least three mins and needed medical treatment. That’s just embarrassing.

    I say this again Mason Greenwood is best United player after Paul Pogba. Imagine it was Rashford instead of Mason for the assist to Cavani. What Rashy would have done, taken a touch or two, tried to go past the player and on most occassion run onto the defender. And the goal, I don't think Rashford has the composure and touch of Mason even if he is 3-4 seasons pro.

    To be fair, I think Fred have only taken one or two of those long shots from outside the box this season. And they have been the correct choice, and on target. I think he's learned not to take a ridiculous amount of poor shots. That was last season (before Bruno mostly).

    Why are we always compensating for Harry 'Potter' Maguire 'The Fake Captain'? When he's a 80M, 100kg 15st 10.5lb Joker who can't Run! Maguire and Lindelof are the 'Usual Suspects', Individually & as a pair cannot defend 'Unacceptable' Not Man Utd type. But Bailly & Smalling are 'World Class' Individually & as a pair can defend 'Acceptable' Man Utd type. Maguire & Lindelof are the worst defensive due at Man Utd for 35 years! So Yes, Sell Maguire & Lindelof for £30M each and Replace them with Koulibaly & Smalling for £60M or Koulibaly & Konate 80M. That would be Excellent Business!

    @omgwerockhard The feeling is With this defence WamBa, Bailly, Smalling & Shaw, 4 defenders who can defend, we would have given Man City a excellent run for the title but instead we are 12 points down than where we should be. Those semi finals, quarter final and group Stage we would have won them. We would have put that defence against any opposition out there and come out on top. We would have been possibly the top team in Europe with Pace, Power & Good Organisation. They are Man Utd type and better than Man City. The Oppositions out there must be laughing at us Right Now, that we allowed this to happen. A Missed Opportunity at present! The way we've treated Smalling was 'Criminal' and we are still paying the price up to this day. Ole & Fans owe him an Apology. Bring Back Chris Smalling 'The Real Captain' there's still 3+ years at the top, if not Konate would be an improved replacement!

    The weird comment from Ole about Son not getting any food if it was his son can possibly be explained by a cultural way of speaking from Norwegian. It’s no ill intent, but a way to underline what you thought of it. Jose didn’t like it though and weirdly brought up a Portuguese saying arguing you should always feed you children. Kind of funny how these small cultural difference can create drama lol.

    From day one VAR was always going to ruin football and yet the absolute bellends who call them themselves pundits all supported it because they aren't fans and don't understand what the game means to us!

    Referees. Professional football needs to look at rugby and other sports. Clear communication and direct response to infractions using technology and communication with team captains.

    The frustration with that decision isn’t just that it took away a beautifully worked goal, but that it sets a dangerous precedent. In 5-10 years players will be going down for feeling another player’s breath on their skin. Why did we bring in a simulation rule if refs are never going to seriously consider it? Son and Lamela have both conned refs against us this season with pathetic dives and they will continue to be empowered to do so as long as refs let them.

    Honestly I never understood what was wrong with the clear system of Intent and Advantage. Was there intent in the challenge/foul/unsporting conduct? Did the player or team as a whole benefit from said offense? Pretty simple really. Easy for the dimwit refs to understand too and helped to highlight who the really poor refs actually were, as they didn't have a convenient scapegoat.

    Well said. I've been saying it for a while now. I believe a big part of the problem lays with Klopps dig at the refs about how many penalties we have been awarded. They are now desperately going the other way with decisions in a failed attempt to appear fair and unbiased. Our referees are some of the worst in world football quite frankly, because they have very little to answer to in terms of authority and their union is rather strong.

    If Pogba wants to stay and if we somehow could get him to play 80 % of the games instead of 50 % he should without a doubt be our priority (re) signing.

    @andy ashworth I totally get what you are saying, but don't forget he would be the difference between having a proper right winger and having none at all. Which is, really, what we've had for the last 7 years now. I think Martial is done and I can't see Cavani staying on, so it looks like Greenwood will be taking up the number 9 position, unless we bring someone else in. I dont trust James as anything more than a bit part, bench player. Money being no object, id prefer Sancho or Chiesa on the right. But I think we are gonna be shopping in Aldi rather than Harrods this summer.

    @Ant El I agree with everything you said tbh. But when looking at attacking options it has to be ‘is this player going to make a difference in taking us from (hopefully) 2nd, to seriously challenging for the prem’, and for Saint-Maximin I personally don’t see the answer being yes. If it happens and I’m proved wrong great, but currently not convinced.

    @andy ashworth no I'm not. He's a damn underrated player who would shine in a better team quite frankly. Have a real good look at his performance today if you aint aware of his qualities. He's fast, great skill on the ball, can beat a man and can score goals. With budget in mind, he would be a good option. We have to be realistic here. I'd be shocked if the Glazers sanction 100 million in transfers this summer, let alone the 300+ million it would take to bring in Haaland, Sancho, Niguez and Kounde! P.s. don't even fucking mention Rice! A) West Ham want at least 70 million for him. B) He's worth about 35 million tops. C) There are better players out there with more experience for less money.
